~*~ No Music Discussion ~*~
Reppin': Sir Tonk
Who doesn't like music? It's me. I'm the guy that doesn't like music.
That was a lie and I apologize.


I can not enjoy trivial music anymore - "You're an elitist asshole, congratulations?" but, wait, I... "Besides, you are an elitist asshole by all definition, and since you asked what our "take on it was" that's mine."

Songs that are beautiful - Life got you down? Did Congress' final passage of the minimum wage bill spell the end of life as we know it? Did That on Television has your therapy right here.

I want a new drug (band). - "The only band you ever need is Opeth."

Does anyone else like Ariel Pink? - "He apologizes in a very defeated sounding tone to the owner and his young associates, and helps them clean up the mess he made. Ariel then asks if he can sleep on the couch there since he has nowhere to go..."

Explain Mix-Tapes to Me - I always thought mixtapes were what I made when I taped Nirvana songs off of Z-Rock back in '91, but boy did Mr. Belding prove me wrong.

[USA] Skinny Puppy - Skinny Puppy is touring! Reviews of shows now included.

Question about amp settings - Nutmeg tries to get some help in ML, but I can't tell if he's gotten as of today.


~*~ Debate and Discussion ~*~
Reppin': Yiggy
"With great power comes great responsibility." Knowledge is power, right? So smart people are really responsible? Now riddle me this: if these guys are so smart, why are they being so irresponsible with their time by debating things on the Internet all day? DEBATE THAT ONE, INTER-TOADS!!!!

Polygamy - Having trouble with convincing your lady friend that maybe its time you considered adding another to the relationship roster? Well, there may be good reasons for that, or there may not, but either way hone your arguments about the merits of polygamy here!

What is the price of technological advancement? - Is technology always a net positive or are there unseen costs for society? Kind of like the 99 cent value menu. Sure, you think its all net positive, but how much more are you going to be paying for elastic banded clothing?

Supporting the troops - What constitutes supporting the troops and what is necessary to do so? Is there support due beyond financial compensation for their duties?

The morality of missionary trips - Are good deeds with strings and hooks really that good? Or is this a gross mischaracterization of missionary work? Share your thoughts.

Letting stockholders set CEO pay and other communist plots - Are CEO's exorbitant salaries justified, or should stockholders have a stronger reign on what their CEO's earn?

Democrats strap on kneepads on Iraq Funding Bill - The democrats are trying on a new party symbol, adopting the folding chair in lieu of the donkey.


~*~ General Bullshit ~*~
Reppin': SpecialOlympian
GBS is the forum where threads that don't quite fit anywhere else go. We already have lots of specialized subforums already though, so a large portion of what flows into GBS are threads like "I just pooped my pants at work today and I don't remember eating all that corn". Oh, and these:

Let's Draw Pictures with Microsoft Excel and Other Boring Software - Did you know there are other drawing applications besides MSPaint and ArtRage? It's true! In fact, art can be almost anything. Thank you dogbox, for opening our eyes.

Tales From A Women's Work Release - seraphsdiamond: "Hey guys I have some AWESOME AND HILARIOUS STORIES FOR YOU!!!" SA: "Thanks for the AWESOME AND HILARIOUS STORIES but stop TYPING LIKE THIS!" "Ok, here are the rest of my awesome stories." Behold the power of internet anonymity and constructive criticism.

Virtual Barbershop (You must use headphones!) - It's like drugs, but pussies can enjoy it too.

Greatest promo poster ever - God damn it ComradeBototo you fucking pussy. "I didn't want big fat Jew to think I was hurting her big fat feelings so I'm gonna puss out and not post these hilarious posters."

My Circus Confessional - Rusted_Halo discovers the origins of the word Carnival. Etymology: From Italian carnevale ("Roving Tent Village") + Middle English carnel ("pertaining to the flesh").

    Lair Flair!

    Your lair. Maybe you lure victims to it, maybe you hide in it between killings, or maybe you haunt it 24/7 because you’re tragically confined by a curse.

    SkyMall Product Review: Bark Deterring Ultrasonic Collar

    Works great on my child, who hasn't barked at all for as long as she's worn the apparatus. When she turns three, we will remove it for a trial period.
